rain


We do need the rain-I just wish it would stick to raining at night!    There is hoeing and digging to be done , but that will wait.  All the currants and gooseberries have been flowering well and the strawberries are joining in. 
The pear blossom is delicate and beautiful, so no more frost right now , please!!

Today I need to go to a joinery just up the valley, to see if he has a large bag of sawdust/shavings available. This gets extracted directly from the machines by vacuum, and is also free!     I use it for workshop floor cleaning and The Oily One uses it for...oil! Also cat litter.

Then a few phone calls to see how pots are selling, in case I need to adjust the making list.

Then....make some pots!!!

Isn't it great when things other people throw away can be used for free? I am hoping the rain eases for the weekend.

Yeah Gwynneth, same here. So much digging to do and the ground is like a bloody bog.

I go to my local woodyard for the same stuff which they bag up for me, or rather, the chickens!

Hope it dries up for you soon...

that photo just about sums up Glastonbury today. With 2 hairy dogs there is an ever-present pile of old towells by the door!

More rain....in Wales! What a surprise! J's on her way over to Cardigan this morning, so won;t be best pleased. She's going to visit daughter & grandsprog for a few days and was hoping/planning to get out and help in the garden - maybe on the back-burner, by the sound of things! Hopefully, no more frost here, too!

I've taken to snorkling to my garden which resembles something like primordial soup it is so slutchy and wet.

It suddenly went warmer here this afternoon... I wonder if that's a sign of better weather to come; probably not!
